Ny Alesund, Svalbard - 7 - Beware of the Bears

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

There is sufficient activity in Ny Ålesund most of the time to keep polar bears away. However if you leave the environs of the buildings and activity, there is a distinct possibility of an encounter with a bear which may regard you as dinner or at least take exception to looking at him (or her) in a funny way.

So you get these reminders at the edge of town.
